La πόλις ideale di Posidippo (SH 705 = 118 A.-B.)


Posiddipus' Ideal πόλις (SH 705=118 A.-B.) if we accept the bequeathed ἄμφω in 118, 18, it's easier to focus on, in the text, the topoi of an historical and literary tradition, and consider the elegy in its whole. At the end of his life and of his experience of Court Poet, Posidippus recovers from the past all that can benefit his native polis and himself.
